biopsy day by Joan H. Patient Expert Posted Thu 27 Apr 2006 12:00am The preliminary biopsy report: negative for malignancy.

Day +139 It's ... by ANNGREGORY74 Patient Expert Posted Sat 21 Feb 2009 11:36pm Day +139 It's me and I'm going to be perfectly up front. I feel rotten 24 hours a day. It's not like before with the leukemia. It's a new and insidious feeling that I could live without. One solid month of fevers, vomiting and diarrhea. I can't eat, or rather, one bite sends me into a hunched position with a stomach cramp and extreme dia ... Read on »
Infection and Neck Surgery by robin Patient Expert Posted Fri 11 Feb 2011 10:11am It all started on Tuesday, January 18th in the afternoon. I had been out doing errands for about 5 hours and when I returned home I started to feel that familiar ache and fatigue and my neck began to feel sore; as if one of my lymph nodes was beginning to swell. By the next morning, the right side of my neck was huge and all I wanted to do was l ... Read on »
The Scariest Words Revisited by Ron Sparks Posted Sat 30 Jul 2011 11:36am When I first learned I had cancer, I started this blog.  It has garnered enormous interest, tens of thousands of views, and many cancer fighters have expressed interest and gratitude for it. I was re-reading my blog today and realized that there are a lot of blanks in the diary – I left out things that I didn’t understand, or were afraid to ... Read on »
small stupid things by Joan H. Patient Expert Posted Tue 09 May 2006 12:00am 1) I haven't heard the final report on my biopsy yet. I called over to Dr. O's office, and his assistant told me it had just come in today. The bottom line read was "negative for metastic cancer" or something like that, but I want to read the whole report! I'm still not convinced it was a great sample. I faxed over a records r ...

also noted by Joan H. Patient Expert Posted Tue 11 Jul 2006 12:00am That lump on the right side of my neck, the one that came back with a negative biopsy? It's as hard as a rock and killing me, and it's definitely bigger. I feel like someone transplanted a large marble into the side of my neck. I can feel it when I swallow, which is weird -- I'm used to having a lumpy sensation lower down ... Read on »
Halloween Theme: Fat Necrosis (dress up as the fatty lump in Brandy's chest for Halloween!) by Brandy W. Patient Expert Posted Tue 07 Oct 2008 7:08pm Best news ever: FAT NECROSIS! Biopsy is clear. It took them a goddamn while to get back to me, and I have my suspicions that the only reason the doc called was because she read this article in the Straight about me: Cancer Affects Young Adults. She called me and said, "Did my secretary call you?" "Um, nope." [I had called and left 2 message wi ... Read on »
